123 miles yesterday. But I set ships clocks back two hours to Marquesas time–so that was a 26 hour period.

Tough times. Drizzle, low ceiling all day. But lumpy mixed swell such that Murre refuses to allow a full set of sail unless I’m OK with those sails, especially the main, beating themselves to death. Have tried everything. Am tired, and all I have to show for it is 15 miles since noon and now just a jib and mizzen up.

Heading south.

Batteries low. More later.
